Entries are now open for budding artists, aged between five and 18 years of age, to submit a portrait for the About Face: Gosford Junior Portrait Prize Competition.
- The portrait must be on A4 paper, and in portrait (vertical) orientation.
- The subject should be of a person who is special to you - someone you know and who plays a significant role in your life (not a celebrity taken from a photo in a magazine or on the internet).
There are four age categories: five - eight year olds, 9 - 12 year olds, 13 - 15 year olds, and 16 - 18 year olds.
One winner will be chosen in each category, with the competition judged on merit and originality.
Entry is free. Limit one entry per artist.
Register Your Entry.
Selected finalists from each category will be exhibited in the Community Gallery from Wednesday 6 January to Wednesday 20 January 2016.
Entries close: 4pm, Sunday 3 January
Finalists announced: 11am, Wednesday 6 January
Exhibition: Wednesday 6 January to Wednesday 20 January
